Of course, they are cherry picked benchs, maybe at settings that benefit AMD the most but still even if it ends being between Gulftown and Sandy Bridge plus the overclocking potential and the cheaper price, FX is an enticing platform, no doubt, and far from the catastrophic failure that a lot of people though it would be.
Is this keeps up for PD and IB I might buy my first AMD CPU. I'm somewhat tired of having to buy an entire new platform to upgrade.
